āluān – organic certified coconut products from sustainable plantations


It shelters, heals, nourishes and sustains. A tree so well suited to the basic necessities
of human life that it has long been regarded as a gift from the Gods. We’re on Simeulue Island
of Sumatra’s coast. This place is a rare, remote paradise. But as turtle eggs are poached, and rainforests
burn to make way for palm oil it’s clear there are limited opportunities
for people to make a living. People are forced to sell out the environment
in order to make ends meet. Our solution is coconut. Rainforest friendly. Organic certified. And sustainably sourced. We’ve made the finest, rarest, cold-pressed
and entirely raw coconut oil. We’re improving farming practices, organic
certifying and replanting – so communities get the benefit from higher value coconuts, with more of them to sell. We’re weaved throughout the entire supply chain and know each coconuts story, from tree-to-you. Sourcing from our surrounding islands means
eyes on turtle poachers and GPS tracking of farms guarantees rainforest
and wildlife are spared. Husk, shell, and trunks will be converted
to bioenergy to power the island – with the goal of zero waste. Unless we set an example of successful, sustainable business banks and politicians won’t give their support. So we’re working hard to prove that sustainable
business is possible here and everywhere. keep an eye on us and help us make good in a world of tricky, unsustainable business.
